I think I will start my review of "The Artist" by giving the movie a little bit of context. I am a little bit of a fan of British music, so I had a tendency to enjoy this movie a lot. There were many scenes that I could easily relate to, especially the music and how the photographer uses the camera to get the shot. But I really thought that some of the parts could have been trimmed down a little bit, especially in the scenes where he is holding up some sort of a camera. However, the overall movie was good. There are several times where I was glad to see something else on the screen. This is not the most technical or artistic way to do a film, but it was still very well done. I could not help but think that it is not the most artistic movie ever made, but it was definitely better than some of the other movies that I have seen. The one criticism I had about the film was that some of the music was a little bit weak. Some of the music in the movie is really strong and very powerful, but it is sometimes a little overused. I thought that the album "I'm Your Man" by Leona Lewis was really good and really fitted the movie. It is a very powerful, beautiful and emotional album that I would not mind seeing on the big screen. In a way, I felt that it was a little too obvious. I would have liked to see a little more of that power, especially in the scenes where he is holding up the camera. But overall, I thought that this was a good movie that I would recommend to everyone. It was better than most of the other movies I have seen, and that is saying a lot.

The filmmakers behind "Liyana" are clearly capable of making a compelling film. When it comes to telling the story of a young Syrian refugee, they manage to avoid the typical pitfalls. However, even when they feel like they are doing something different, they still end up with a good film. The film opens with a young girl in Syria who is forced to abandon her family. The girl and her older sister try to find a way to survive in a different country. They decide to leave and find a place to live and start a new life. They eventually meet an old friend who helps them to find a safe place. Unfortunately, the girl's aunt is an extremist and refuses to help the family find a new place to live. They are unable to find a job and must rely on food and charity. The filmmakers acknowledge this weakness and manage to create a compelling story without giving up on the morals and principles that the Syrian people are so vocal about. The filmmakers manage to tell the story of a young Syrian girl and her father and uncle, but they do not use the standard Hollywood techniques. There are no cliches in their filmmaking. The film is a truthful story of a young girl who is forced to leave her family. It is also a story of the power of love and courage. I have seen a few documentaries about the Syrian people, but I was never so moved by a film about them. I can only hope that other people will take note of this film and take note of the film's message. The film makes me so proud to be an American and a citizen of the world. I give the film an 8 out of 10.
